Getting six meals out of a cornish hen - 2 with just the meat, 4 with a chicken/spinach quiche. I'm the only eater, and I don't mind eating the same thing several days in a row.

Fresh lemons can be frozen. I have a couple I'm going to freeze, after removing the zest and freezing that. Then I'll quarter the lemons, open freeze them, and throw them in a bag.

I am foregoing alcohol for the time being. It wasn't that much money - 1 beer/day - but, since I like sipping a beer while cooking or deep cleaning, and I'm doing more of that now, I didn't want to...

Another angle to all this is that shoppers *may* simply be spacing themselves out in time better than they normally do. I've been driving by groceries to observe the best times, and, really, the...

Another positive for the shopping situation - across the board, not just senior hours - is the absence of kids. Almost no one bringing his/her kids. That speeds things up as much as anything.

I'm not laughing at preppers - I'm someone who still has a big Rubbermaid container in my basement labelled "Y2K." But I think it is a chance to coolly evaluate the overall enterprise of "prepping"...

This isn't the emergency they were looking for. In fact, I'll bet most committed preppers don't even think of this as a "true emergency," which has a specific visualized scenario for them. Gangs of...

Presumably if they could only wait a few days, there would be less of a line. Another observation: "the elderly" in New Orleans look pretty darn fit, compared to the general population!
